The "doubloons" in this bright side dish are actually garden treasures! It was a hit on the buffet at our pirate theme party. Once you try the fresh-tasting medley, I predict you'll serve it time and again.

"Very tasty. I had to bake mine a little less time otherwise they were too mushy. Loved the flavor and color medley! Have made this time and time again!"
